The Dark Side of the Earth

These recent videos of the Earth viewed from the International Space Station bring back great memories.  When I flew aboard the ISS in 2003, we didn’t have the low light cameras used to make these videos, so seeing these now is a real treat.  One of my favorite time-off things to do on the dark side of the Earth was to turn off all the lights in the Docking Compartment, let my eyes dark adapt, and just enjoy the view!

Here is how I described the nighttime view in one of my 2003 blog posts from space.
